Cornell partners with three Parisian universities and with Duke, Emory, and Tulane, to offer a full immersion program in the heart of French
culture and society. With courses in French at the EDUCO Center, students can explore topics that bring aspects of the city into the
classroom. University courses expose students to a very different academic culture. EDUCO has also been able to arrange research and
independent study opportunities at the Institut Pasteur (Biology research) and/or with faculty experts from a variety of fields. Students live
in Parisian households or student residence halls at the Cité Universitaire.

for EDUCO at Cornell Abroad and with former students to determine what is best for you. Homestays include breakfast and 3 mail meals.
Students staying at the "Cite Universitaire" share access to kitchen facilities and receive credit toward meals in dining halls. All students
can purchase inexpensive meals at student dining halls throughout the city.
Every semester, EDUCO offers a rich array of excursions and activities, including an overnight trip (Loire Valley, Burgundy), a day trip
(Reims, Chantilly), activities within Paris (theatre, museum visits, boat trip, walking tour), and many optional activities (cooking classes,
wine/cheese tasting, "un pot d'amitie" with French students, and additional guided excursions to provincial cities). Classes also include
visits to relevant sites throughout Paris.
